Lightbulb Vinyl wrap ideas - what do you think?

I had an idea of vinyl wrap styling on my Civic and toyed around in Photoshop.

Tell me what you think.

What's changed:
- Matte black beneath grill
- Yellow fog lights
- Matte black rear lower trim
- Tinted back headlights

Without prompting I would perhaps only have got the yellow fog lamps, so I would say don't bother, the difference is so trivial

Its all in the small details.
Dont want to overdo it and I have everything needed already since before so it will just be time
Together with tinted rear windows (not shown in pic), front lip, side lips - I think it will unite good with the rest of the matte black.

I have never liked the yellow tints myself, but the subtle black looks good, especially contrasting with the white.

How on earth do you keep it looking so good in a country with so much snow? Here, everything gets filthy and covered in salt!

Haha I don't as that picture is taken the very day I picked up the car
I have given it a proper wax afterwards but dodging wet spots was fun for a day :P

Let's hope for better climate soon
DIY in negative temperature is not so pleasant
